Sometimes all you need is a romantic holiday somewhere beautiful to restore the mind and relieve stress. On the Sunshine Coast you’ll find the best of both worlds, with adrenaline-pumping activities and relaxing private beaches. Explore the region’s dense rainforests and diverse hikes by day and wind down in the sand at one of many breathtaking, quiet beaches by night. Here are House of Travel‘s top five tips for couples visiting the Sunshine Coast.
1. Get your nature fix at Rainbow Beach
Turquoise blue waters and golden sand greet visitors to Rainbow Beach. One of Queensland’s best-kept secrets, this stunning bay is the perfect place to skip crowds and really refresh with your loved one. You’ll feel like you’ve set foot in paradise at this natural wonder.
2. Embark on a private boat ride
Malue Os Eco Boat hire enables you to self-drive your own luxury electric boat along the Noosa River. Arrange drinks and a picnic and stop off at one of the gorgeous beaches for lunch and a swim. Or, simply cruise along the river listening to your favourite music through the boat’s onboard iPod dock.
3. Hike Mt Coolum
For the ultimate in romance, climb Mt Coolum at dusk and watch the sun set over the coastline. Try some star gazing before walking the thirty minutes back to the track’s start and heading out for a delicious dinner.
4. Indulge yourself at the Sebel, Noosa
For the finest luxury accommodation, check into the Sebel in Noosa. Surrounded by world-class restaurants and just minutes from Noosa’s main beach sits the Sebel. With contemporary apartments inspired by the Hamptons, a jacuzzi and two swimming pools, wellness is a just a moment away. Enjoy the view from your private balcony over a glass of wine.
5. Get shopping at the Eumundi Markets
Known as Australia’s biggest and best art, craft and produce market, the Eumundi Market is guaranteed to delight. Drawing around 10,000 people to the picturesque town of Eumundi, the markets feature over 300 stalls of artisan crafts and fresh local produce. Shop your way around the stalls, or simply enjoy the live music and street performers.
